KVB Projects and Thumbnail Caching

Thumbnail caching can cause a problem when attempting to copy and paste KVB projects from one folder to another, such as for saving projects to a network drive.

If thumbnails are cached, Windows will generate a file named "Thumbs.db" and place it in every folder containing a picture file.

KVB projects contain picture files. If the Thumbs.db file is in a KVB project, then that project file cannot be completely copied and pasted into another folder. All files in each folder past "Thumbs" in alphabetical order will be lost.

Open Windows Explorer and go to Tools / Folder Options. On the View tab, check the box for "Do not cache thumbnails".
